Mr. Brooks Review

I'm nothing short of stunned that I liked this movie as much as I did. While Demi Moore sucks, as per the norm, Dane Cook was surprisingly believable (for the second time this year! Has hell frozen over?!?). Kevin Costner seems to be bringing his car...(read more)eer back to tolerability with last year's Guardian and now Mr. Brooks. He creates a surprisingly interesting and compelling serial killer not dissimilar from Dexter on the Showtime series. Is it perfect? No. But it is pretty compelling and, at rare times, creative stuff.

Overall Score: 7/10

i had a feeling Costner would make some kind of a comeback; he's not such a bad actor... plus it's interesting how Dane Cook went from stand up comedian to starring in a ton of major movies
